A restaurant that opened just six weeks ago has shot to the top of the list of Hull's most popular restaurants.
Piccolo by Piccolino is number one in the TripAdvisor ratings after receiving a slew of rave reviews since opening its doors in October. The Kingswood venue replaced Gino D’Acampo’s My Restaurant, which was run by the same chain.
Going by the slogan "a small Italian Restaurant with big dreams", Piccolo promises to serve up authentic Italian food using "the best ingredients sourced directly from Italy". And it seems to have struck a chord with diners, who have already posted 92 five-star reviews.

The restaurant has snatched top spot from Beleza Rodizio, the all-you-can-eat Brazilian steakhouse which is also on Kingswood. It also shares a name with the independent Piccolo bistro in Chanterlands Avenue, which is also riding high on TripAdvisor (see the top 10 below).
One local customer, Kirstie, wrote on TripAdvisor: "Once again this place didn’t disappoint. The service is second to none and the food is just outstanding! Entered with trepidation from the change from Gino’s but I was mistaken, the food and service are just as good."
Another reviewer said: "As always the service was exceptional, they never fail to impress! Valentino was incredible and his eye for detail is impeccable! He always remembers faces and names (and what you like to drink!) He always makes you feel welcome and never fails to rise a smile!"
One customer said they had visited multiple times since the venue opened. "Been here more times since its short opening than the entire period Ginos was open," the reviewer added. "Says it all. Very good value, quality food, nice wine, excellent staff."
Many of those posting said they had previously visited Gino's which may partly explain how the restaurant had built up such a large fanbase so quickly. One wrote: "First time in Piccolo, we were a bit unsure what to expect! As we were regulars when it was Ginos, but it exceeded our expectations. The staff, are exceptional, the chef is unbelievable, everyone made us so welcome, a fantastic night."
As of November 27 2022, the top 10 Hull eateries as stated on TripAdvisor include some well-known family Italian restaurants, a popular Indian venue with plenty of happy customers and a top-rated fish and chip shop. The top 10 is ranked according to review posted over a period of time, including the number of five-star reviews.
